Our Lionesses Wildcats Centre Return!

We’re excited to announce the return of our Lionesses Wildcats Girls Football Centre later this month! An initiative we have delivered for a number of years, which welcomes girls (aged 6-11) to come and participate in fun football sessions.

Why not bring your daughter along to one of the sessions or share this with a someone that may be interested.

All sessions are live for booking on to and can be found here: WWFC Wildcats

Please take a minute to help raise awareness

Shay Patel, who we sadly lost in September 2020 after a brave battle against an aggressive form of a brain tumour, would have been celebrating his 14th birthday today.

Whilst we take a moment to remember the funny, kind and likable person he was; we’re also supporting his family who are raising awareness and campaigning for more funding to be made available for research into brain tumours. We’re asking if you could all take a minute to support Brain Tumour Research by signing their petition.

Please take a minute to complete the form and share it with others if you can.

The Annual General Meeting of Woburn & Wavendon FC will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams on Monday 12th October 2020 at 7.30pm.

We’d like to welcome all members to attend the meeting, which can be done using the following link on the day.

Support for #Shay21

Shayen Patel had a tremendous influence on those around him with many of his friends and family reaching out to people he liked and supported (like KSI earlier this week – below) to share a message in memory of Shay.

Shay was a huge Chelsea FC supporter and with their summer signing of Ben Chilwell, who started his grassroots journey with Woburn & Wavendon FC, it felt fitting that we reached out to him and ask if he could send us a video to pass on to Shay’s family and friend after announcing his Chelsea FC shirt number as 21, the same number Shay wore every week!

This weekend (19th/20th) all of our WWFC teams alongs with teams playing in the MKDDL and BYSL will take the time to applaud before kick off in memory of Shay and Dean Mandabva, a Moretonville JFC who sadly passed away earlier this month after also bravely battling cancer.

At such sad times, It’s amazing to see the influence and support the footballing community offers to each other.

Shay’s friends also reached out to K.S.I, who fulfilled Shayan’s wish of having him appear in one of his video’s as he was a huge fan having watched all his videos and seeing him perform live.

After a brave battle for the last 2 years, it’s with great sadness that we announce the loss of Shayen Patel, a Woburn & Wavendon FC U14s player and friend to many, and now a WWFC angel who will forever watch over our games.

Shay was a brave ‘lion’ who was passionate about football and supported so many players in the team with his kindness and laughter as he regarded everyone as a friend. We’re extremely proud to be able to say that such kind, caring and devoted boy wore our club badge every week throughout his footballing steps, even taking to the pitch last year to play with his friends whilst going through treatment for a brain tumour (we have a video of him scoring during this game!).  

Through his battle, Shay would always look to be positive for the people around him, as well as consider others that he didn’t know but wanted to help as he was looking to set up a charity to help families going through a child’s cancer diagnosis. Shay’s parents will carry this on for him and have set up a memorial fund that will be used for the charity.

Shay’s Memorial Fund

Shay’s family will be celebrating his life tomorrow (Saturday 12th September) as they lay him to rest and from everyone at Woburn & Wavendon FC, we send our love and thoughts to all of his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

As a club, we believe sport and exercise is important, however the health and safety of our members will always be a priority, so we are suspending all training going forward with immediate effect and will be reviewing this regularly in line with the additional information that will be made available to us in the coming days/weeks.

We appreciate there may be questions regarding the remainder of the season (matches/training/tournament) and will update you as soon as we can. In the meantime we hope that you remain safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.

We’d like to thank you for your understanding and support.
